I treat people struggling with anxiety , depression, PTSD, grief (including loss of baby), DHS, and other mental health issues that cause distress.
Thinking about starting therapy is sometimes a scary step if you haven’t ever been in therapeutic relationship before. If you are thinking about starting therapy I encourage you to give it a try. In trauma focused therapy you decide where you want to go and on your timeline. Lets work together so that you can participate in activities that you want to take part in and enjoy them. I believe that you already have many skills to make positive changes in your life. We can work together in a client focused setting to identify your strengths and help you build on your strengths to make changes that will improve your quality of life.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Cedar Rapids anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Cedar Rapids.
